  3. ‘It wasn’t a race but a war game’ Bernard Hinault ‘Without question, the hardest one-day bike race ever created’ George Hincapie The Tour of Flanders – known to cycling fans as the Ronde – is the biggest one-day bike race in the world. It is a potent mix of grit, cobbles, steep climbs, narrow roads, national pride, beer, brutal weather and the maddest, most passionate fans in the sport. It’s the Tour de France boiled down into a single day of non-stop action – the Belgian equivalent of the Grand National, Wimbledon and the FA Cup final. And there’s yet more to it than that. Edward Pickering tells the story of the Tour of Flanders, its history, culture and meaning, through the prism of the 2011 Ronde, an incredible edition that was one of the most exciting bike races of the past half-century. He weaves the narrative of that day into a broader study of the race, with eyewitness accounts from the key locations of the Ronde and dozens of interviews with the riders. The Ronde is a textured portrait of a race, but it also explores the deep links between bike races and the landscape and culture in which they take place, and explains how cycling works, with the most detailed analysis of a single event ever seen.

  11. Her name is Wendy Green, but she’s better known as Wendy in Wonderland, being the name Bart Cummings gave her after she asked him to win the Melbourne Cup with her horse Rogan Josh. While Cummings has no peer when it comes to winning Australia’s greatest horse race, he thought Green was dreaming when she told him her lightly-raced and unfashionably bred Perth horse had the potential to win the Cup. Too shy to approach Cummings personally, Green, a Darwin schoolteacher, arranged the deal through her trainer who in turn contacted Cummings’ Melbourne foreman, as a result of which Rogan Josh moved from Perth to Melbourne’s most famous stable. The fact that Cummings had seen Rogan Josh narrowly beaten in the 3200m Perth Cup in 1999 had a significant bearing on his decision to accept Rogan Josh into his stable. So began another colourful chapter in the history of the Melbourne Cup to give Cummings his 11th winner of the famous race. In between all the racetrack drama was the interminable optimism of Wendy Green, who travelled some 7,500km by car on a round trip between Darwin and Melbourne to see her Josh race to glory. And after the history-making win, Green returned to Darwin by road with extra luggage – the Melbourne Cup trophy and a crate of champagne stopping off on the way to share her joy with scores of larger-than-life characters in remote places of the Outback. There has never been a more colourful post-Cup celebration in the history of Australia’s greatest race and this book is a must read for people who like to hear of dreams coming true.

  12. The trials and tribulations of the Melbourne Football Club over the past few seasons must seem like a different world to the men who wore the red and blue with such distinction in the 1950s and early 1960s. Back then, there were 12 teams in the VFL, and Melbourne was its king. Perhaps tyrant is a better description, such was the Demons’ brutal domination of the other clubs in that era. In 10 years they won six premierships, five of them coming in just six seasons. It is the greatest dynasty the game has known, and a proud chapter in the club’s history that is brought to life in Melbourne FC since 1858: an Illustrated History. Celebrating the 150th anniversary of football’s oldest club, the book goes back to where it all began – 1858, when Melbourne was formed and football first emerged. Along the way, the club has experienced plenty of glory, some pain, and the odd controversy too; it has blooded superstars such as Ron Barassi, Robbie Flower and Jim Stynes; and it can boast the greatest coach of all, Norm Smith. It’s quite a history.
